Impressive starts by Kopech and Cease last night. Dunning was not helped out by an untimely error and ended up with a bad line.


Kopech: 7 IP, 0 ER, 2 H, 2 BB, 9 K (72 out 102 pitches were strikes)

Dunning: 4 IP, 3 ER, 6 H, 2 BB, 6 K

Cease: 6 IP, 0 ER, 2 H, 2 BB, 6 K (51 out of 82 pitches were strikes)

I know Robert is coming back early June, but there is nothing for Hansen. That has to be a serious concern if forearm problems continue to hold him back.

I tried googling ghdh to no avail. Can you tell me the definition of that acronym?

Hahn last week said Hansen was throwing bullpen sessions without issue and that they have to build up his arm strength with the lost time before he can go anywhere.

Stephens and Kopech probably get the call up at the same time in June.

The doubleheader in early June is past the Super 2 date and I'm 99% sure that will be Kopech's ML debut.

Laz Rivera clearly doesn't belong in A. I am not sure if he has a chance in the future given he is above the age in A ball, but .370 plus is insane.

Rivera has been on fire. What's the scouting report on him? And how often does someone like him keep improving by the month and reaches the majors? What comps are there?

It's very rare that a 28th rounder like Rivera ever reaches the majors, much less makes an impact. Historically, there has never been a player drafted 837th that has ever made the major leagues.

Lacks above-average tools across the board and plays the style of game that seems perfectly suited to a platoon/utility/bench role at ceiling; floor as organizational depth with some potential up-and-down time in the middle infield....Long term, heís a low-round flyer thatís way off the radar and carrying no real expectations, but Laz Rivera has an interesting array of tools and intangibles, and he could prove to be a nice little find by the Chicago White Sox if he develops the next few seasons.

What about that guy who just had his number retired by the Sox last year? Drafted 1139th overall. Extremely rare, yes. But not never.

Definitely a long shot, but it seems like some chance if all things go right.

I doubt he is ever THIS good at a level higher than A plus.

Of course anomalies will happen, but honestly guys drafted in the 10th round or later have less than a 20% of ever even reaching the majors and even less chance of making an impact.


Late round picks can be nice surprises but shouldn't be counted on.
